Review: This is a book that I have had for a while but never got around to reading it. I am glad I finally did because it was a pretty good read. I liked that this book switched perspective between all four characters because it added a lot more depth when you know what everyone is thinking and feeling. Although, at some points it felt like Caleb and Corinne's perspectives were somewhat unnecessary. I thought the way everyone handled the situation was very realistic. These characters were easy to relate to despite having never been in their situation. I felt so bad for Ellie and Josh throughout the whole book. At first I was annoyed about Ellie's history but later on it just made me like her even more. One other thing that annoyed me was Josh and Ellie's parents weren't really around that much. I know this is fairly common in ya books but I just thought it took something away from the story. Overall, I think this book handles a serious issue very well and although it wasn't perfect it is an enjoyable book.
